Dorian (pictured) is a new up-market bistro in Notting Hill, with a chef who has a quite serious track record. Ingredient quality was pretty high and the meal was enjoyable, though there was one dish that was disappointing and the bill is anything but cheap. Still, I imagine as this settles down it will be quite an asset to the area, and Dorian was already packed at my Tuesday lunch visit. 

Hide is a vast restaurant with its flagship “Above” restaurant on the first floor, a bistro at ground level and a bar in the basement. “Above” has a new head chef and it seemed to me that there were some teething issues at this meal e.g. a foie gras dish that had a tinge of bitterness.
